We were there for a lunch. The food was really good, prices reasonable, service fast and friendly. Also, the decoration is nice. Even though we were looking specifically for Pink Elephant after reading reviews on tripadvisor, we missed it a few times (overlooked). And the map mark on tripadvisor is wrong. The place is just opposite Koko's bar.

Just ate here tonight and thought it was amazing so was compelled to write a review straightaway. Had the tastiest curry so far in Sri Lanka. Asked for it super hot and that's exactly what we got. Cocktails were delicious and strong. The place itself is so cute and romantic. Toilets spotless and service impeccable. Loved it! Thank you

Ate here as bored of the beach restaurants on the other side of the road which seem well overated after trying a number of them over past few days. This place proved to be a really good surprise, the Chicken kebabs were excellent as was the ginger chicken. Cocktails were also very nice and both the food and drink were... More

We went here two nights in a row! I had mild veggie curry which was very tasty and my boyfriend had medium chicken curry, also very tasty and just the right heat for a western palate. Service was good, a bit slow on the first night so we ordered a starter on the second night.

Rice were cooked to perfection and were super delicious and fragrant. Furthermore the waiters spoke great English and worked effectively and quickly despite of the place being rather busy at...
